A few years ago when someone would think about ‘games,’ they would be thinking about outdoor games like cricket or football or maybe arcade games. Years later computers changed the whole perspective of gaming. People could sit at one place and play all those games with the magic of fingers. Clicking the mouse and pressing the keys on keyboards to play all those 2d games was amazing indeed. But our amazing success in technology has brought all those ‘games’ into a small, few inches device we call a smartphone. A smartphone is something that the new generation just can’t live without. We can play all those games like cricket and football without even having to go through the trouble of standing up; we have new games with better visuals with first-person perspectives, all just within reach of our touch.
Battle Royale games like Fortnite and Pubg has made an enormous success in the past year or two. The popularity of these games is off the roof. So many people are playing these games for hours every day. Sadly not every phone can run these games as they require high specifications to run. Games like Asphalt and Gangster Vegas which requires more space and more ram with a better operating system to run cannot be played on every phone.
